Customisation Within Manufacturing is Benefiting from Digitisation

Manufacturing | Customisation | Anota

The drivers of manufacturing have not changed much, people still require the same sorts of things that they needed 100 years ago to satisfy their needs and meet their goals.

The big forces driving manufacturing today can be reduced to the ‘three Cs’: connectivity, creativity, and customisation. More products are being made to order and it is all being brought together by digital technology.

Customisation is a very important part of today’s manufacturing process as many products have different requirements as to what is needed. At Anota, we like to adapt and customise our software to whatever our customers need; as we realise they all have different requirements. We will work for you to achieve the system that you need, with adaptable workflows and the ability to intelligently assign your documents depending on what department you are in, so you can be assured that whatever document you scan in, it will end up in the right place with only minimal entry required; saving time and money by doing so.

Whether you need it integrating into your ERP system, in which DocuWare can pull the information and drop it into the ERP system; or whether you work in purchasing and you need to process an invoice, in which instead of making multiple copies for the receiving clerk to verify what was actually received, to other departments that may need the slip for inventory control and stock pulling for manufacturing purposes, and the copy you need yourself to verify the invoice for payment, you can have any documents like these, in one place, where they are easy to find for anyone with the authorisation to access the information.

Customisable manufacturing infers the re-establishment of smaller manufacturing business engaged in production for the local community, reduced volume output and increased flexibility in comparison to the tightly controlled mass production of similar or replicate items. Industry 4.0 – digitalised manufacturing – centres on how increased connectedness (e.g. via the internet of things), flexibility, adaptability and resilience will lead to an increase in unique, individualised items produced on-demand and with a high degree of customisation available.

This will require the true customisation of production, products, services and the supply chain through extremely high levels of flexibility in reconfiguration and adaptation. Such customisation will need to be able to consider an individual’s requirements (preferences, wants, needs, desires) and those dictated by society through culture, trend patterns and status.

In the initial phase of introducing DocuWare into your company, Anota will communicate and listen to find out the information that we need to build your bespoke Document Management System, and then we will carry out a scoping workshop, to process map all of your document streams and workflows. By collaborating on the process mapping stage, every aspect of all your document workflows are meticulously planned. All system deliverables and project milestones will be clearly outlined in Anota’s ‘Scope of Works’ document. We will communicate with all your key personnel, so you will know exactly what you are getting.

DocuWare is customisable for any department, and any employee within any department. This is what makes it so unique, it is not just any old document management system, the intricacies behind it are very complex, making it a genuine, easy-to-use system, with very advanced features, which are beyond what is available in any other document management system available today. At Anota, we are very keen to be the undisputed document management provider in the United Kingdom; our support is second-to-none, with our dedicated experts ready to pick the phone up to any problem you may be having and solve it with extreme efficiency.
